Working closely with the Sheffield community

Shining a light on our courses

At Nacro Sheffield Education Centre, our learners have worked on creating a wellbeing garden for all to grow plants and vegetables, and as a place where people can relax during their break.

Our catering and hospitality learners use the vegetables that grow as part of their cooking. They prepare food for other learners and staff for lunch daily, free of charge.

“Teachers support learners to produce work that not only meets but often exceeds their level of study.”
